Governor McDonnell Announces Milestone in Support Program for Prisoner Re-entry

Today Governor Bob McDonnell announced a milestone in a partnership between the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles and the Virginia Department of Corrections that supports his initiative of successful prisoner re-entry.  An outreach program through the DMV, called DMV Connect, launched in March 2012 at Deep Meadow Correctional Center in Powhatan, has completed expansion into 12 correctional facilities around the state.  About 500 identification cards for inmates preparing for release have been processed.

The following correctional facilities all have employees conducting ID card transactions on a routine basis:  Bland in Bland County, Coffeewood in Culpeper County, Deep Meadow in Powhatan County, Deerfield in Southampton County, Dillwyn in Buckingham County, Fluvanna in Fluvanna County, Greensville in Greensville County, Haynesville in Richmond County, Indian Creek in the City of Chesapeake, Luenburg in Luenburg County, St. Brides in the City of Chesapeake, and VA Correctional Center for Women in Goochland County.

The program could expand to federal facilities and local jails later this year.
